The Vampire Diaries has given birth to something incredible, The Originals. The Originals will follow charismatic villain, Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), to New Orleans. He’ll be joined by his sister, Rebekah (Claire Holt), and brother, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), who were also a major part of The Vampire Diaries. Also appearing in the spinoff will be werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), who is carrying Klaus’ hybrid offspring. The new show is set to premiere on October 3rd on The CW right after The Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere.
Check out these promotional stills from the second episode of the season, titled, “House of The Rising Son.” Animals reference, eh? In this episode, we’ll be getting an 1800’s flashback and apparently seeing Klaus knock a few back in a fine Italian leather jacket. We don’t mind.
